White letters out IF the wheel is clear coated or painted... so you can use Westleys bleach white


NO white letters out if the wheel is just polished it will destroy the finish thats the reason i have black out i want white out so bad

ok im doing white letters OUT. i have cleaned my letters on my old tires with just soap, water and a brush so i don't gotta worry bout the bleach....it is a pain but it works haha.
Too bad i cant put the tires on yet haha it will rub so bad the way it is now. They'll sit for a few weeks til i get the body lift on the truck

loading up the truck with the classic 2s and the 33s off to get them put on the wheels

I like how white out looks but mine are always getting dirty, especially if I rub a curb in a drive through. I want to put mine with the white lettering in now, less cleaning and IMO it makes the tire look a little bigger.

I use some wheel cleaner on my white lettering and it works pretty good, but bleache white like stone said is supposed to work the best.

I like white out personally as well. I think it really completes the look of the truck.

When they get dirty, clean them with the Westleys Bleech white. If you don't want to use that, use Comet and a brush. Both work great

I just think that solid black tires look like chocolate donuts, need something to offset all the black.

look like you have a few years worth of tire dressing stuck to them with all that brown gunk on there. It looks like you haven't ever cleaned them... get wesleys bleach white like suggested before its only like $4 and get a scrub brush... Soap wont cut through the grime and old discolored tire dressings. But be careful not to let it get on the rims its powerful sh.t.

You cant rock white letters without the Wesley's
